By far the largest and most visible of the tools in Planet Clark’s toolbox is the demonstration trailer. Aboard the trailer with interactive displays and full size equipment is a place to see, touch, and learn about myriad topics. Whether it’s about saving energy, building safety, conserving water and other resources, stormwater management, building or remodeling for healthier homes, or making choices for responsible living, you’ll find it in the trailer.
